Success Mindset

+ 100 buzzes
Let's 'bee' Successful!

This hive is a go-to location for finding and sharing SUCCESS MINDSETS and best practices for creating and using these positive mindsets.

SUCCESS, many say, is a journey. Living a successful life is about moving in a positive direction. Using SUCCESS MINDSETS can help any of us to move from where we are now to an infinite number of positive destinations.

Having a positive, realistic, and effective MINDSET (which you might also call an outlook, a point of view, or a belief system) is one of the most powerful tools any of us can use to help us enjoy buzzing through our lives and our careers with great results.

    Thanks for another brilliant buzz, Fatima. The way I try to live is one day at a time, one step at a time, while maintaining a positive outlook, compassion and kindness towards others. Moreover, when one thinks about cosmic time relative to the human life span, it appears that our collective lives exist for a mere nanosecond (one-billionth of a second).
    To wit: the global average life span is about 71 years according to the latest data from the World Health Organization (WHO). Scientists say the planet Earth is about 4.5 billion years old and the Universe is about 14 billion years old. I find this to be a sobering and humbling comparison. That is, putting the human life span in a cosmic perspective. That's also why I also try to abide by the maxim, "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff - And It's All Small Stuff" (per the book of the same name and book series) http://dontsweat.com/
    These perspectives help a lot with stress relief during challenging times, at least for me. Thanks again for another brilliant buzz, Fatima!

    Many a times people blame others for their doom but thy don't understand that they have not valued themselves. It was beautifully highlighted in your buzz. And you have mentioned reading this book in your previous buzz. I wished that you should pen something related to reading this book. I have read several novels of Danielle Steel though she produced lots of books. One of my favourite novels were The House, Malice etc. and the list goes on.

    Thanks for sharing this buzz with us my friend, @๐Ÿ Fatima G. Williams. Atleast we all share a common interest that is avid reading.

    I've come to the conclusion that there are three kinds of people in the world:
    1. Those who don't know what they don't know and hence are not capable of giving advice
    2. Those who know what they know and what they don't and can give advice on matters in their knowledge base
    3. Those those that ask for advice from the knowledgeable, listen and then find out for themselves.

    Of these the last is what I believe we should aim for while avoiding the unsolicited little voice in your head that says, "what makes you think you can..."

    Most people do not have the spine to have the conversation, "You are not good enough" ~ so they will passively aggressive ghost you in standard non-reply mode and hope you will get the hint......of course they made this grand decision of you in about 6 seconds between their Angry Birds game and live Instagram feed update 8?/ This is both Dating and HR - draw your conclusions and Venn Diagram as you will. PS - the military was always ready and eager to tell you what a worthless piece of shit you were - it built character.

    Excellent reflection! All professionals without exception have skills to perform certain functions, but there are few who are able to recognize their failures. It's no use having a huge bag of knowledge and experience if you do not have your self-esteem elevated, for whatever you do will be considered by others a disaster, that's how the world turns. The superego is also not the best solution, but it is what masks the shortcomings of many of the bosses currently employed in the labor market. Throughout my career I have also been rejected several times in companies that I considered excellence, but I realized that many were afraid that I would take on a smaller position and be able to take their position as manager over time, comfortable position of boss, and look that some even came to tell me this, but I never let myself be beaten by the negative words, quite the contrary, then later I realized the good that they themselves had done to me. I would never have the knowledge to grow in my career with people who had nothing to add. Beginning to write a blog, a book or articles is really a very arduous task, especially when we have the ardent desire to show all those who rejected us one day, that we have enough knowledge and experiences to share with anyone who knows nothing, but it is the determination and self-esteem that keep us going. And over time we realize how much being a blogger or writer or an author does us well, and make us leverage not only our career but also highlights us in the environment we live in, that is making a difference, not just behind of an office desk thinking that it is changing the lives of subordinates, the organization, or even their own career. Everyone should experience this experience because they would know where their strengths or weaknesses in their professional career lie.

    And not everyone will tell you you're not good enough straight to your face. If it's implied rather than expressed, well, that may be even more destructive. One can respond to a direct put down with a sound 'FU', but when the put down is implicit, it plants insidious seeds of doubt in the mind.

    Then there are those who tell you what you can't do out of sincere desire to keep you from failing.

    Thanks, John for another thought-provoking article.

    Very interesting post, @John White, MBA. I've had my share of firings and toxic bosses as well. Interestingly enough, every time I've been fired, my boss has said "You do good work, Robert, but we're letting you go." I may write about this one day. It seems the day you stop nodding your head, you're a target. Head nodders always last longer than head shakers. Nobody has a problem with a "kiss ass" but if you fight, you have legions of people wishing you'd just go away. Thanks for the post.

    John thanks for writing this. I occasionally ask myself what motivates me and one thing I always come back to was back in the late 1970's when I totally messed up my GCSE's, (too much partying). My English teacher told me I would never amount to anything so I left school with very few qualifications and have WORKED ever since. I have never been out of work, even after redundancy. I'm lucky to have met and worked with some fantastic people over the years who have helped and supported me, but I'd also like to thank my English teacher who told me I'd never be good enough.

    @John White, MBA Great to hear a story of recognition of what holds us back and what supports us in moving forward in our lives. If I surround myself with people who have higher expectations of me that I have of myself, then I will exceed my own expectations. My grandparents, my parents, my wife, my first manager, my friend who taught me squash, my friends, I can recite a long list of those who had higher expectations of me than I had of myself. There is a long list of detractors and belittlers but their names and roles have been crossed out so heavily I can't recall the names. Kia Kaha John, you do good service here.

    This article still inspires me @John White, MBA. For some reason, some people's titles have intimidated me. I think it depends on how they treat others with regards to being intimidated. I just wrote a small story about midlife and some feelings/fears I'm facing. My husband said, "Why do you write negative things when you do so many positive things in life?" I told him, I write what comes to mind and my writing does depend on my mood. Even articles that some may view as negative well, others can relate and I've found it can start conversations that lead to putting our heads together. At other times I admit, it's just cathartic. By the way, @David B. Grinberg tagged you, your company & I added your publications to the tag on my last post which is on Thriveglobal. You are an inspiration to so many and one day I would love to chat with you on the phone when you have time. I have a few ideas and I could use sound advice from someone like yourself! Kudos to you for ignoring the haters and letting them ignite your flame!

    @John White, MBA - enjoyed this post --- what helped me was accepting that I was good enough (coming from a family of perfectionists, this was a big step for me!) This quote: "Always remember, the people who say you can't do something can't do it either!" So true - and when you do it, they really don't like you, so better to leave them in the dust!

    #5 This is very topical because I saw an interview with Matt Damon where the interviewer asked how his mentor in what was a regular school in Boston end up producing three Oscar winners in Damon, the two Afleck brothers. It is the way he fondly remembered his mentors that showed me just how many people in life are unsung heroes.

    I believe that when we have that level of gratitude, that emotive energy can be sufficient to override the negative batteries that drain us of energy and life.

    We know when we come across a negative battery, for their only purpose is to drain us, and so it is important to recognize these effects but also supplement positive effects that Matt Damon expressed in his great affection and tribute to his high school drama teacher, a man who selflessly taught his art so others could achieve the impossible dreams. We cannot let our lives be defined by tormentors when there are these mentors that you have expressed in our life.

    #2 @๐Ÿ Fatima G. Williams I happy you enjoyed this testimony. I just got back from the hospital. I spent the last week in Springfield Memorial having a video EEG.

The week was a great time to read, write, and work. I can only go forward.

    I'll tell you want speaks to me the most, Preston ๐Ÿ Vander Ven - That you are willing to talk about the stages of learning through your life. And offer some frank details that put most of what the average person whines about in stark contrast.

    All of the neatly wrapped up & happily ever after short forms of entertainment we consume, really set us up for not understanding that being alive means we aren't at our destination.

    Thank you for sharing and writing and spreading your story.

    #3 I would answer exactly as Cyndi #4 - how we react to our emotions is a decision. We are not able to decide to have an emotion, but we decide what label to apply to the emotion, we judge whether it is a good or bad emotion, and we decide whether & how we act based on the emotion.

    As I am learning more deeply everyday, we either choose to love being alive come what may, or we are in a heap of pain.

    As Preston says:

    "Whatever pain you have in your heart, you canโ€™t move forward unless you release it. This pain may be hate, anger, rage, envy, yet Love and Forgiveness will allow us to move forward through anything.

I know I need to work on this part - a memory capsule perhaps ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค— I don't remember half the names of my classmates during school who are on a whatsapp group created by some of the friends I know.
    But To make up for this I make sure I leave a lasting impression by leaving them with something to remember and being my lively self. A good reinforcement for me thank you.

    Thanks for this excellent advice, Paul. I've been a big fan of Dale Carnegie since college. Moreover, his success principles helped me immensely in achieving big career goals and landing my dream job in my early 20s. Carnegie's words of wisdom and astute advice on mastering human relations are indeed timeless and can likewise be applied on social media (to a large extent).

    "If thoughts are negative and they become a little bit more negative everyday then something damaging might become catastrophically damaging in the future." - Excellent connection, @Ali Anani. This is an insightful post and offers a good dose of perspective that can be applied to the many tiers of life. Having found myself in the pool of negativity, I can attest to the ill effects of constantly swimming in its waters. Sometimes swimming against the tide can be exhausting and it may mean finding new ways to get to the other side. The same with our thoughts. If we continually think negative thoughts, then our actions and effects thereof may also be negative. But when we dip our toes into a new body of water and start to feel the positive effects of doing so, then we can slowly swim more comfortably and explore new shores.

    Time doesn't wait for us, that is for sure. And even the best-laid plans aren't always on solid footing. We have the ability to change and hopefully the self-awareness to be able to recognize when the tides of change are necessary. It can be a slow and arduous process, but like you've said "Remember what is small today and manageable could become huge and very impacting tomorrow. Don't wait for the tide of time to drown you." How true. Excellent insight, Ali. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and Deming's Funnel experience - very interesting.

    #46 @Cyndi wilkins- so, based on your comment the supply and demand of time define the price of time. This is a special case as the supply of time is only 24 hours a day. So, demand increases and supply decreases from a fixed amount. THis is similar case to land. The supply of land is mostly constant (we may fill sea water to make more land) and the demand is always increasing. The result is bursting of land prices in many countries.

    @Ali Anani Once again a gem of a piece! After living on a tropical island for the last five years I discovered something from the Balinese. They live not for today but for the moment!!! Their philosophy is that , yesterday is gone and tomorrow is a mystery so live for the moment. All well and good and a philosophy I truly admire but perhaps the town planners should abandon this practise as with the increasing amount of traffic on the roads there is not a lot of 'forward planning' Oh well I guess we cant have it all!

    #44 Great observations are there in your comment. I loved the way you dear @John Rylance described the mirrors as possibilities of problems may attack us from all directions and the need to keep the mirrors clean. Yes, time doesn't move linearly if we consider it as a river.
    John Rylance
    24/02/2017 #44 John Rylance
    Tides ebb and flow, there are high and low tides, for this reason it might be a mistake to assume the tide of time is a constant forward movement. The flotsam and jetsam of life can stay with us, it may go never to return, or we may need to ensure we deal with it successfully if it does return. To pick up on your analogy of car mirrors, we need them all, problems or good things can come at us from any angle, so we need to see in all directions, so that we can embrace or reject them accordingly.
    Yes we can't go back in time, but we can (with rear mirrors) stop the past catching up with us.

    Your comment, Ali, "If we only take the value of the present time things may look quite different from the future. When the future arrives it shall leave little room for correction" has value not only in our personal lives but in our businesses. Time after time we've seen companies planning only for profits today; failing to see the 'big picture' of tomorrow when those plans could eventually topple their organization. Abraham Lincoln said "You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today". As always, thank you for a thought provoking share, Ali.

    ๐ŸFirstly Lance, I congratulate your parents for bestowing you with such a great given name.๐Ÿ˜†

    ๐ŸSecondly, your Almost Buzz reminds me of the Introduction Chapter of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

    He tells the story of how an uncle of R. U. Darby was caught by the โ€œgold feverโ€ in the goldrush days, and went west to DIG AND GROW RICH. He found a gold vein in Colorardo, enticed some investors for the required machinery and inspired Darby to join him at the mine.

    To quote the โ€œALMOSTโ€ from the bookโ€ฆ

    โ€œThe uncle and Darby went back to work the mine. The first car of ore was mined, and shipped to a smelter. The returns proved they had one of the richest mines in Colorado! A few more cars of that ore would clear the debts. Then would come the big killing in profits.

    Down went the drills! Up went the hopes of Darby and Uncle! Then
    something happened! The vein of gold ore disappeared! They had come
    to the end of the rainbow, and the pot of gold was no longer there! They drilled on, desperately trying to pick up the vein againโ€”all to no avail.
    Finally, they decided to QUIT.

    ๐Ÿ›‡ALMOST ๐Ÿšซ

    They sold the machinery to a junk man for a few hundred dollars,
    and took the train back home. Some โ€œjunkโ€ men are dumb, but not this one! He called in a mining engineer to look at the mine and do a little calculating. The engineer advised that the project had failed, because the owners were not familiar with โ€œfault lines.โ€ His calculations showed that the vein would be found JUST THREE FEET FROM WHERE THE DARBYS HAD STOPPED DRILLING! That is exactly where it was found!

    The โ€œJunkโ€ man took millions of dollars in ore from the mine,
    because he knew enough to seek expert counsel before giving up.โ€
